    Woman goes out, gypsies move in.

    I don't know whether to laugh or cry, how can this possibly be allowed to occur.
    Why didn't she just call the cops and tell them their were intruders in her house?
    I mean, WTF?
    Gipsies move into immigration officer's home while she spent night away at Proms

    An Immigration officer told of her distress last night after she returned home from a night out at the Proms to discover a group of Roman gipsies “squatting” in her house.

    Julia High, who works at the UK border agency, found the family of eight living illegally in her home of 30 years in Leytonstone, east London, a fortnight ago.

    Despite her furious protests, they insisted their bogus tenancy documents were legal, claimed neighbours had told them she was dead and that they had rented the house from her “son”.

    While the women were wearing her clothes, the rest of her belongings had been stuffed into garbage bags and dumped in her back garden.

    She was even offered a glass of her own wine after being “invited” her back into her own home.

    After Miss High, 55, secured an eviction order the following day, the group proceeded to trash her house, leaving most of the rooms uninhabitable.

    "These people have just trashed 30 years of my life and thrown it into bin bags,” Miss High said last night.
    “It is soul destroying."
    Miss High had been out at a Proms performance on a Monday evening earlier this month at the Royal Albert Hall when neighbours raised the alarm.
    She had left for work the previous Friday morning and had then spent the weekend visiting her elderly parents in Guildford, Surrey.
    She returned home to find the Romanians sitting around the dining table.
    The front door had been levered open but she admitted she had no way of proving the Romanians were to blame.
    "The women came to the door dressed in my clothes, they were sitting around my dining room table, drinking my wine out of my glasses,” she said.
    “They even offered me a drink and told me they were from Romania.
    "They said I was dead and my son had rented the house to them. I am very much alive, single and I don't have a son."
    The following day Ms High secured a county court eviction order, which the police served that evening.
    But by that stage, the group had destroyed much of her home. The kitchen and bathroom suffered water damage due to removal of the lead roofing.
    A computer, containing valuable pictures of her two-month-old grand-niece, and digital cameras have been taken, the carpets have been removed and food taken from her fridge.
    Squatters packed her clothes into in her suitcases. Only her two beds and her wardrobes were not damaged.
    Last night, members of the gipsy family abused reporters after being confronted at the house they were currently staying at around the corner.
    They chased reporters down the street, spat at them and also hurled abuse.
    Later a woman, who gave who her name as Carmen, came out to the street and denied being the family behind the destruction.
    The 35 year-old said she lived in the house with her four children, aged, 4, 12, 14 and 16 as well as her 54 year-old aunt and her two children aged 16 and 14.
    The house cleaner, who came to Britain from Romania a month ago, said she rented the house from "a man who stopped me on the street and asked if I wanted to rent this house".
    She declined to answer detailed questions.
    Neighbours of Miss High became suspicious of the claims she was dead and called her parents Jean and Bernard, who are in their 80s, to confirm.
    Her frail mother said: "As far as I am aware she is very much alive and she certainly was when she left our house this morning."
    Outside Miss High's home were several garbage bags and a note pleading with people not to ransack the rubbish.
    Neighbours said the gipsies had come back and collected clothes Miss High had thrown away.
    Miss High had switched off her mobile phone last night.

    Ironic, no?

    Wonder if she's still singing "Land Of Hope And Glory" now?

    I'm sure there must be some Romanians around that aren't thieving beggars and spongers, but they seem very low profile.

    You need an eviction order in England to remove burglars? Are the police scared of minorities? Sure looked that way in the riots.

    I wonder if she was set up by someone she's pissed off in the course of her job ? Though I have previously read about this kind of thing happening.....just not to this bizarre extreme.

    The Ceaucescus, last dictators of Romania, were such kleptomaniacs that when they went to England, the French president actually contacted Buckingham palace to WARN them. Whilst state guests in France, they had stolen anything not nailed down.
    Apparently after being invited on state visits to other countries, they even stole things like the (gold-plated) bathroom taps and other fittings !

    Sounds like the Indians on Sukhumvit, who liberate the hotel duvets, curtains, etc. if they're given half a chance.

    'a man stopped her in the street'.
    people have gone on holiday and come home to find
    that their homes have been taken over:
    usually by Romanians
    coincidence or what.

    Unbelievable !

    One of my friends went to Italy, and before he did I warned him about Gypsies who thrust their babies at you to distract you.....then pick your pocket. Sure enough, his girlfriend got pickpocketed. But she said she only had her bag open for a very short time....she was quite surprised anything got taken. My friend chased the gypsy lady down the street and finally she ran into a women's toilet. But he just followed her in there.
    Oh ! The protestations of outrage and innocence ! But just at the height of her outrage, the stolen purse fell out of the gypsy's dress.

    Scary stuff, much like an invader in your home, I would have no problem whatsoever using whatever force is needed to recover my property, but in some of the liberal countries, you might be charged with assault, battery or who knows what.

    I'm not sure why the police weren't called immediately to resolve the problem. There is no mention of the police being involved other than serving the eviction order the following day.

    If people go on holiday should they expect to come home to find their house occupied by squatters? Of course not!
    If the house is normally occupied as it seemed to be in this case then the police should have been called to the premises and the Romanians arrested for burglary.
    No eviction notice would be necessary in such circumstances.

    The story doesn't appear correct to me and quite possibly important facts have been deliberately ommitted to dramatise events which is normally out of character for journalists

    Quite a traumatic experience having your home taken over by filthy strangers. It had happened to me and I hope never to relive the experience. Took a very long time to get the rotten scoundrels out.

    The police probably were called, but theses days if they are busy or see it as non urgent, they often tell the caller just to report the incident next day,
    Also they do not understand the squatting laws very well, same with the home owners ,so all just stand around scratching thier heads .
    Throw in the race element and a legal looking document ..
    .
    I lived in that area of East London for a few years in the early 1980s it was a English working class area, since then most young people have given up and moved out .
    From the faces on the high street you could estimate immigrant majority at
    80% + and most not from the worlds most charming countries.

    Still she was a fuking immigration worker,probably voted labour party too, wonder how many she let in?
    you would have to have a heart of stone not to laugh

    Events like this are not "soul destroying" as she puts it. Its quite the opposite - its enriching the soul.

    Your Thai in-laws came for a visit ? You came home to find them squatting down and preparing food on newspaper spread out on the living room carpet ?
